There's two simple rules you need to follow:

I installed the database, but now the teams show pink boxes instead of the minishirt. or I installed the database, but now the bikes and helmets don't show. or I installed the database, but several stages are Québec - Québec (203,7 km). What have I done wrong?
Spoiler
Most likely, you unpacked the database in the wrong directory. As a general rule, you need to install the Expansion Pack in the same directory as the one where you can find the PCM executable file (PCM.exe). In our installer, you should manually change the installation directory. The standard location where Steam installs your game is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Pro Cycling Manager 2018, but this directory can be different if you set Steam to install the game in another directory (f.e. D:\SteamLibrary\common\Pro Cycling Manager 2018).

If the Lite Pack has worked fine until you updated to V2.1, you'll have to uninstall the Lite Pack and then reinstall V2(.0) again. After that, run the Updater again to update to V2.2. There has been a problem with the installer of V2.1, which uninstalled previous versions of the Lite Pack, therefore removing many features from the Lite Pack. This has been solved with V2.2, but if you encountered the problem, the only way to fix it is by reinstalling V2.0 and then updating to V2.2 using the Updater.

I subscribed to the Steam Workshop mod, but Steam doesn't download anything and the database does not show up in the game.
Spoiler
This is a problem with Steam Workshop and occurs to many people across different games. A few workarounds that are mentioned on Steam forums:
- Install the game after subscribing to the mod. Steam will download the mod right after installation of the game. If you do this, you'll have to reinstall the Lite Pack as well.
- Don't use Steam client betas, as these might inflict this issue.
- Sign out of Steam, close the Steam client, restart your computer, open Steam client and log back in.
- Same as the solution above, but first unsubscribe from the Workshop mod and at the end resubscribe to the mod.

The game has updated and now some features have changed back (f.e. UCI World Tour is Cya World Tour again). What should I do?
Spoiler
You should reinstall the Lite Pack after a game update. We are currently investigating if the Repair option of the installer does the trick as well. We will report this here as soon as we know more.

Do I need a clean installation of PCM for the database to work?
Spoiler
You don't necessarily need a clean installation of Pro Cycling Manager 2017. We recommended this when we released the 2016DB for PCM 2015, because of the large amount of problems the Expansion Pack was causing back then. Since the Lite Pack haven't caused any gamebreaking bugs since the final patch, you don't need to perform a clean install before installing V1 of the Expansion Pack.

However, performing a clean install will save you a marginal amount of disk space if you had the EP or another database installed before, and will of course lower the risk of incurring in annoying crashes, even though nothing like that is supposed to happen.

To perform a clean install, go to your installation directory and delete all contents of the folder Pro Cycling Manager 2017. Don't delete the folder itself! Open Steam, go to your Library and right click Pro Cycling Manager 2017. Select Properties and go to Local Files. Click Verify integrity of game cache. Steam will now check which files are missing (all files) and will automatically download and install them again.

I installed the database, but I would like to install another database as well. Does this cause any issues?
Spoiler
We tried to configure this database in a way that it can be installed alongside another database. However, there are some files that could get overwritten when you install another database. This could result in alterations of your gameplay (like different sponsorkits or missing/wrong jerseys, accessories, etc.) or even crashes. So it is possible to install multiple databases, but it's risky.

You can however try to make a second installation of PCM in a different path. This way you can play 2 databases with virtually no risks!

SOLUTION: V2 features disappearing after updating to V2.1
For all that have the issue of the V2.0 features disappearing after the update (pink boxes instead of minijerseys, missing bikes/helmets, et cetera), follow these steps:
1. Uninstall PCM.daily's Lite Pack 2018 from your Control Panel (or Settings - Apps in Windows 10)
2. Reinstall Lite Pack V2
3. Use the Updater to update to V2.2 from V2

There has been a problem with the updater uninstalling the previous version before installing the new version. That problem has now been solved, but you'll need to follow these steps to install it correctly if you've encountered this problem.

I installed the folders correctly but still some invisible helmets and equipment Sad Most helmets and wheels as far as I can tell, and some frames too.

Then you surely didn't install correctly, as everything works here. Are you sure you let Explorer overwrite the files when asked?

Yep I did. Will give it another go then, if it works then I must have hit a wrong button somewhere Smile

Love you beautiful people working so hard on this Smile Awesome to see stats, new sponsors and new races coming in as well as the awesome other updates. Hope this is accompanied by a patch soon from Cyanide making sponsor objectives actually useable and I can't wait to start a long-term career Smile

This might be a stupid question, but will it be available on workshop? x)

We are currently having trouble uploading the database on Steam Workshop, but we're working hard to solve it. Stay tuned!

Cool man! Cant wait, looks amazing! Grin
 
haasje33
You will still need to download the database from this site though, as not all of our features can be installed using Workshop.

It's gonna take at least half an hour, as I'm reinstalling the game at the moment. We'll notify you as soon as we've managed to put it up on Workshop.

nice work guys. Thx for the fast update Smile Cant wait to try

Do i have to download it via Steam if i have already installed the Lite Pack (V1) manually?
 
moromete
The idea is to get the V2 database and install it on a clean installation of PCM 2018 and then get the database via Steam, so make sure you get rid of V1 and get the new version ready.

The wait is killing me, get that mod up on the workshop as soon as possible guys, appreciate the work!
